7255 General Greivous Wheel Bike chase review

Parts: 111

Figs: 2

Price: £10.00

The first set to include GG.

1. General set and Minifigs (not manual because I don't have it)

The contents of the box after being built.

Both minifigs. The set includes 5 Lightsabers!

2. The Wheel bike

Front view standing on legs.

Side view. GG can't hold the controls because of his arms.

Roller mode. The legs are a bit to chunky so to roll it has to be tilted forward.

3. Boga

The lizard.

Grey tip to the tail.

The front back and saddle split in to three sections.

4. Overall

Build: 4/10 There isn't really much to build.

Minifigs: 9/10 It comes with GG with the special cape and Obi-Wan in ROTS gear which is hard to find I think.

Design: 5/10 Not really to scale but otherwise okay apart from Boga which just looks like any old dinosaur. Also the controls on the Wheel bike aren't really right.

Parts: 6/10 Comes with some Dark Green bricks and lots of rods ( the guns on the wheel bike) the Boga feet are also nice.

Price: 8/10 £10 for 2 figs isn't bad it could have a few more parts though.

Playability: 10/10 You can easily recreate the movie scenes with this set.

Overall 7/10 It would be better if the bike and Boga were more to scale and more accurate as well as the set having more parts.

Not one of my favourite SW sets.

Kinda boring and the set is poorly designed IMHO.

We do get the general, but that's not nearly enough.

Thanks for the reivew and fine pics.

I had this set (£15 RRP actually ;-)) and agree mostly with your review, although on the wheel bike itself two legs can be placed at the front end and two at the back to enable it to 'roll' properly. Boga is very <insert that tiresome argument>, and the set itself is very simple and contains many large pieces. The minifigures are good though (I traded my GG however :hmpf_bad: ).

Just to offer my personal thoughts;

Build: 5/10

Minifigs: 10/10

Parts: 3/10

Price: 7/10

Playability: 10/10

Overall 7/10 -- (not an average)

My brother had this set, and I think it isn't the best set, but great minifigs. Could use a Star Corps Clone or 2 from the BP.
